'The Walking Dead' Sees Stat Boost in Piracy Numbers

Despite being a ratings giant on return, The Walking Dead continues to see stats rise in illegal piracy numbers. — To counter the roughly 17 million viewers in America that tuned in for the episode, about 600,544 copies of the episode were downloaded in the first 24 hours following the premiere. That's a considerable rise from season 6 premiere numbers, which sat at 569,772.

'The Walking Dead' Season 7 Premiere Review

It's hard to look back on a premiere like this and have a whole lot to say. For starters, there's little to talk about in terms of plot. So too, the episode only leaves the one locale for a brief detour. But it's also difficult to give a reasonable verdict on what is undoubtedly the most distressing episode the show has ever put out. Warning, spoilers ahead.

Multiple Death Scenes Filmed as 'The Walking Dead' Doubles Down Efforts to Keep its Secret

After season six's monumental, and infuriating for some, cliffhanger, AMC is devoted to keeping the secret right up until season seven premieres. — THR are reporting that sources have reported 11 cast members have filmed death scenes in order to avoid anything slipping through the cracks. According to the report, the decision will be made in the editing room who gets killed by Lucille once the show is done filming.

Andrew Lincoln and showrunner Scott Gimple have been openly defensive of the cliffhanger ending that's left fans seething. — While a couple of semi-regular cast members have admitted that they don't know who departs the show following Negan's brutal beat-down (given that the scene hasn't seen completion in production yet), Norman Reedus has admitted that he knows exactly how it goes down.

The Walking Dead Season 6 (2015-16) Review

The Walking Dead's sixth season reaffirmed the popular notion that this show is increasingly difficult to love, despite how good it truly can be. By the end of the finale, it feels as though the actors carried much of the sixteen episodes, but a welcome dose of plot progression ensured that the show didn't feel quite as aimless as it has in the past.

The Walking Dead, Season 6, Episode 3 - Running Out of Things to be Thankful For

The Walking Dead's sixth season is proving to be a powerhouse, but not until now had things felt so hopeless and futile. — So soon after Alexandria initially felt like a safe haven in the latter half of last season, Rick and his fellow survivors may have to face their own share of condemnation. It's common in a series like this, but yet again nothing has felt this dire.

review

The Walking Dead Ep. 8 (Coda)

The mid-season break (ridiculous concept) of The Walking Dead is upon us and episode 8, Coda, brought a welcome change of pace and perhaps an avoidance of the obvious. But then again, the unobvious became the obvious as soon as someone told someone else that someone else again was still alive. Man, it’s hard to write a review without spoilers.

The Walking Dead - Ep. 7 (Crossed)
review

The Walking Dead - Ep. 7 (Crossed)

There are certain things in The Walking Dead that are predictably consistent - the large degree of filler episodes; the uneven gingerness (gingerocity?) of Abraham’s moustache and hair; the snatching of victory from the jaws of defeat, etc. But there is nothing, NOTHING, as consistent as the characters’ single and simple desire to be as stupid as humanly possible. It’s almost as if they have never seen a TV show, film or, indeed, any type of culture, anywhere in the world. These guys are the type to check out attics without putting the light out, to send a scantily clad girl outside to check on that strange noise or to play in a haunted house just for the larks. In short, Freddy Krüger would have a ruddy well field day with these guys.

The Walking Dead Ep. 6 (Consumed)
review

The Walking Dead Ep. 6 (Consumed)

I would like to pretend that the last two episodes of The Walking Dead did not exist. Imagine this: Episode 3 finishes with the cliffhanger of ‘who is with Daryl?’ Episode 4 tells us the story of the search for Beth and the resolution of the previous week’s episode. What a wonderful world that would be. Ebola wouldn’t exist; Scotland would be independent; Kate Hopkins wouldn’t exist and two episodes of trite and superfluous nonsense would be washed away to the ether. We would all have 90 minutes of our lives back. Perhaps in that time I would learn a language; stroke some puppies; bask in the joy of a Kate Hopkinsless world.
